Set in the peaceful rural land east of Columbus, Holy Cross Cemetery offers a place of eternal rest for the faithful departed.
The Cemetery's St. Francis section is a 3-acre oval shaped section with 2,348 grave spaces for both monuments and lawn level markers. Landscaped with many bushes, ornamental trees, and evergreen shrubs, this section is bordered by a beautiful granite mausoleum and a spacious fresh water pond.
The chapel mausoleum's exterior is constructed of beautiful pearl gray granite fronts trimmed with Sardinian pink granite. It contains 180 tandem crypts, 60 single crypts, and 144 niches for cremations. The interior is constructed of creamy Perlato Italian marble crypt fronts trimmed with brown emperador Italian marble. The chapel area is designed with a cathedral ceiling and skylight and is available for committal services and Masses. It contains 72 tandem crypts and 72 single crypts.
Holy Cross Cemetery was consecrated in 1993. It was constructed in order to meet the needs of the population on the east side of the Columbus metropolitan area.
